REID AIMS FOR FRENCH VICTORY

NEWS IN PICTURES

Reid Architecture is believed to be the only British-based practice still in the running to design a new 'landmark' tower in Huningue, France. This 17-storey residential scheme is one of just three proposals shortlisted by developer Bloc Kilmartin, following a keenly fought international competition.

If successful, Reid will be awarded the development on a major gateway site on the border with Germany and Switzerland.

The tower, which will overlook the Rhine, will house a range of one- to four-bedroom apartments, with a commercial space at the base. Clad in locally sourced hardwood, the facade boasts full-height shutters which, according to the practice, 'add a level of animation to the building and set up a playful dialogue with the public space.' A winner is expected to be unveiled next week.
